Youth Art Exchange (YAX) is looking for submissions of art made by Bay Area LGBTQ youth! YAX is celebrating LGBTQ Pride with Be Seen: Bay Area LGBTQ Youth Art Show at [x]space arts hub in the Excelsior in June. Be Seen will be a space for LGBTQ-identifying youth under 25 years old to show their artwork and be seen, appreciated, and celebrated. It is a space especially for LGBTQ youth whose experiences and identities are marginalized and underrepresented, such as youth of color, girls, first generation youth, low-income youth, and youth experiencing homelessness.
If you’re interested in showing your work (in any medium - visual, audio, video, 3D, performance, written, etc), email Chantelle at [email protected] Artwork must be submitted at [x]space (5137 Mission St) by June 20.
